BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a former north Alabama sheriff’s deputy is pleading guilty to coercing a woman to make methamphetamine for him.

Authorities filed court documents showing 42-year-old Grady Keith Concord of Lynn has agreed to plead guilty to felony charges.

Officials say Concord was working with the Winston County Sheriff’s Office last year when he began pressuring a Nauvoo woman to make meth for him.

Prosecutors say the deputy was a meth user and arranged to get the woman methamphetamine ingredients in exchange for some of the finished drug. Some of those ingredients were drugs taken from the sheriff’s office evidence room.

Concord has agreed to plead guilty to charges that include using his police job to extort the woman.

Concord was fired and is in jail.
